New Manager at the Waikato Environment Centre
Welcome to Ruth Seabright who has taken over from Katherine as Manager at the Centre, pictured here with Trustee Marianna Tyler
Ruth recently set up Hamilton Timebank and has experience in the Community and Voluntary Sector, and is looking forward to working with groups and organisations in the environmental sector, so come by and say hello to her soon. She is keen to meet everyone, and there are some exciting projects coming up in our Environment Centre.
Katherine is away overseas for a few months. She has really enjoyed her years working in the Centre and being involved with all the hard working groups but after 11 years it is time for a change. Best wishes to Ruth in her new role.
Thursday 24th April
Forest and Bird AGM
7.30pm at Hamilton Gardens
Guest Speaker: Jeanette Fitzsimmons “New Zealand’s latest binge on fossil fuels: deep sea oil, extreme coal, and fracking”.
Jeanette will talk about the impacts of all this on our climate and our biodiversity and what we can do about it.
Jeanette Fitzsimons retired 4 years ago from her work as Green Party co-leader in Parliament. Since then she has worked mainly with Coal Action Network Aotearoa to stop new coal mines. In November she sailed on the Vega with Greenpeace to confront the Texan deep sea oil drilling ship in the Tasman Sea.
